Diamond Peak Series #1
Woken by a crash in the night, Ariel watches in horror as demons drag her mother into a hidden realm. Reluctantly, she follows, hoping to rescue her mother, and finds herself in a strange and magical world, stalked by a demon lord who feeds on fear and seeks to enslave the human race.
Ariel discovers that to defeat the demons, she must learn a secret esoteric wisdom to awaken the dormant, but potentially explosive, power of her mind.
Walnut, a quirky old wise man, guides her through treacherous inner and outer landscapes, and Nick, the powerful Warrior who travels with them, proves a dangerous attraction.
The stakes are high, death a real possibility. Fail now, and she fails humanity.
